Mohanlal the complete actor

Updated on February 11, 2012

Mohanlal the complete actor

Every time i see mohanlal movies,he just amazed me again and again.For me, Mohanlal is the most versatile actors of all times in Indian cinema, who can do justice to any kind of roles given to him, be it the "sethumadhavan" in Kireedam or "Dasan" in Nadodikkattu or "Kunhikuttan" (Kathakali artist) in Vanaprastham.He has an amazing talent of touching the hearts of people through his natural acting.He is an actor with the ability to effectively portray the character's inner feelings and emotions and express what the director wants, very fast and convincingly. You can feel the pain and joy of the character he portrays on the screen. Many people say there is nothing much to act in that role, because they never 'felt' the acting.That's why he is known as the best natural actor in the country.

Quotes on Mohanlal

According to CNN-IBN, Mohanlal is the Most Popular Keralite of the Century.

For Time magazine, Lal is India's answer to Marlon Brando.

For Prakash Raj he is one of the finest natural actors India can ever come across

For Amitabh Bachan, he is the finest actor in the country.

For Priyadarshan, he is the best actor India has ever produced.

For Kamal Haasan, he is the most flexible actor in India.

For RGV, he is the Robert De Niro of Indian screen.

For Sunil Shetty,he is the God of Cinema.

For Shaji N Karun,he is the most immensely talented actor.

Manirathnam and Dr.Rajkumar are two frontline fans of this great actor..

Once during the shooting of Vanaprastham a French Technician said: "He is the man born in the wrong side of the world; if he was from the other country he would have already had an Oscar"

Rajni Kanth: I'm sometimes jealous seeing the easiness of his acting. Just can't dream of doing some characters lal had done

Amitabh Bachchan: Lal's style of performance enlightened me about the new phase of acting

Sivaji Ganesan: I feel sorry that he was not born to me. His acting is really interesting

Mammootty: A fantastic, marvelous and unpredictable actor

Aishwarya Rai: Lal's acting is a gift of God

Shahrukh Khan: Mohanlal is quite simply an amazing actor for me

Mani Ratnam: Hereafter, I will never work with a man of whom I am a fan. I often forgot to say 'Cut' in Iruvar

Kamal Haasan: Lal's substlety in dancing without mastering it astonishes even an eminent dancer

M. T. Vasudevan Nair: Mohanlal is a privilege not only to Malayalam but also to the World Cinema

Adoor Gopalakrishnan: Mohanlal owns rare acting style and his paculiarity of acting and versatality putting him in a different league of artists

Shilpa Shetty: If Mohanlal is there then I'm ready to do a Malayalam film

Jagathy Sreekumar : I'm always comfortable while acting with Mohanlal because he is the best actor I know. So i also try to raise up to him

K. Lohithadas: I feel that the upcoming generation can watch performance of Mohanlal and learn a lot. It can be called a textbook of acting

Shaji N Karun: We haven't exploited Mohanlal's talent yet

Hariharan (Director): His gift is that he underplays emotions

Priyadarshan: Lal never prepares for any role or scene. He is not bothered how he looks or what he does. Once the camera is on, he is a transformed person. As lal does only one film at a time, he knows everything about the film, nothing more

He is the first actor to be honored with the prestigious Lieutenant Colonel Post from Indian Army.

Recipient of "Padma Shri" & "Bharat" Awards.

He is the common man, he is the superman and sometimes he is everything in between and beyond.The more you try to describe him, the more he becomes indescribable!

      I have only seen two wonderful actors in malayalam industry ie Mohanalal and Mammooty. They are the gift of malayalam cinema. So don't try to fight comparing them. Try to find their positive side. I keenly watched both actors acting. Mammooty had an expressive facial acting. Mohanlal had perfect natural acting. Both actors have perfect timing in acting. Body shape of mammooty is fine and body movement of mohanlal is fine.

      I found that mohanlal and mammooty brought a new face of acting to malayalam industry. Early actors like Shankar's hero roles have been taken by mohanlal not because mohanlal is good looking than shankar but directors found he is a perfect actor than shankar. Mohanlal had another great quality that, when director give instructions to act mohanlal improves the scene by adding his own expressions better than director's instructions that is really apreciated by directors like Priyadarshan. I keenly watched a 1988 movie Irupatham nootandu i found mohanlal had a different kind of acting from others. Other actors like police officers,poor people in a colony,customs officer all of them simply acted like a drama role and gone. Even i don't like the imperfct acting of a character known as lorence. It may be the problem of director, well also in this kind of movie mohanlal is perfect.Well i think in public mammooty had a charming and very gud comunication languge but mohnlal is a shy type and less talkative, well this isn't a bad quality.

      Honestly i had never seen such talented actors even in hollywood.

      The only problem of Mohanlal is his body shape. But he can dance and fight fine with that body. If he try some excersise to shape his body. HE will be an ubeatable actor in india.

      Mohanlal is a great actor.Lal and Mammootty are capable of competing with any great actor of World Cinema. Mohanlal is a born actor and reached stardom with the support of several personalities like Priyadarsan, Venu Nagavally etc. Mammootty came into the forefront with hardwork and after facing major setbacks.

      Now both of them must be careful when choosing characters.It should be proper for their age and appearance, do not cross the limit.
